Zielgruppe: Der Workshop richtete sich an alle interessierten Akteur*innen der Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaft, die sich mit Abrechnungen von Reisen gemäß Bundesreisekostengesetz (BRKG) befassen (müssen).
Aufgrund der großen Nachfrage bieteten wir einen weiteren Workshop an, in dem Neele Renzland und Béla Bisom von transmissions eine Einführung in die Regularien des Bundesreisekostengesetzes (BRKG) gaben und wichtige Basisinfos teilten. Sie gingen auf typische Fehler bei der Anwendung ein und beantworteten individuelle Fragen – rund um (Auslands-) Tagegelder, Übernachtungsgeld-Regelungen, Beleg-Aufbewahrungspflichten, Km-Pauschalen & Co.
Kreativ-Transfer aims to enhance the international visibility of art and culture made in Germany. To achieve this goal, the program supports international marketing and networking activities. It funds travel to international fairs and festivals, supports digital marketing efforts, and offers digital as well as analog exchange formats such as international get-togethers and networking meetings.
However, we are all aware that our marketing and networking activities, whether physical or digital, have an environmental impact and contribute to the global climate crisis.
A year ago, as part of our cross-sector workshop on Green Mobility, we already addressed the question of how to reconcile environmentally sustainable practices with international networking. We discussed the impact of our individual travel behaviour, responsible mobility management, and concrete courses of action.
Building on that, we joined forces with various experts to re-examine how we can network in a more sustainable manner. Additionally, we had the opportunity to explore the role of networking because we need to unite to effect change together.
To the Program.

The workshop „How to… Reisekostenabrechnung?" was aimed at all interested creatives in the cultural and creative industries who (have to) deal with travel expense accounting according to the Federal Travel Expenses Act (BRKG). In particular, the following are addressed: game developers, representatives of galleries, project spaces and producer galleries as well as artists and producers in the performing arts.
If travel is funded by Kreativ-Transfer or other federal funds, the regulations of the Federal Travel Expenses Act (BRKG) must be taken into account. The application is not witchcraft, but questions, uncertainties and mistakes often arise, which we want to answer or eliminate in this concise workshop: How does a correct calculation of (foreign) daily allowances look like, taking into account arrival and departure days and reductions due to free meals or breakfast in the hotel? How high is the overnight allowance in Germany? Can overnight stays in private accommodation, e.g. with acquaintances, be deducted? Under what conditions can a private stay be connected to a subsidised trip? How can a trip by car be accounted for - and is the reimbursement of taxi costs possible?
